It's a recycled design. Can't remember the guy but he was a head designer for Alfa, then Audi, then Subaru and rehashed basically the same/similar design for all three makes. Looked good on the Alfa, not too bad on the Audi, and lame on the Subaru. But okay, I don't have any plans to drive a newer Subaru in the next ten years anyhow. Plus it will make the beautiful, unique cars stand out more than they already do at Parc Expose'.
Hate it. Yes, reminds me of the last version Seat Cordoba WRC, or some of the recent Suzukis here in the US. I think this is a worse move than the bugeye design, which was widely hated. I hope the aftermarket comes up with something good to overcome this ugliness. :+
